Great location with only a minute walk to the seaside & 5 minutes walk to Shanklin Chime. It's run by a family and all of them were very approachable & helpful. I was impressed with their hospitality. Some rooms got issues with hot water mixing which sometimes is too hot or cold ( which I believe is in process of... More

Great location for a hotel shame it's so very tired friendly helpful staff as no tea/coffee in room or TV remote on arrival. Cooked breakfast was over priced for what you get. I'd say for the price I paid you'd expect breakfast in with the price.

I have to say this is probably the worst hotel I've ever stayed in. Such a shame as the location is lovely. The hotel is in such a poor state of repair. The keys seem to fit all of the rooms. When we arrived we were given the key to our room, 21. By accident I opened 27 to find... More

Although it has a good location, it has poor conditions. Screaming children and noisy people walking/running above around 6am. Showers are terrible, takes ages to regulate temperatures, no shower curtains so water goes all over the place. Beds were OK.

I stayed in this hotel during my visit to Isle of Wight. Indeed the hotel is at a very good location, Shanklin beach , Shanklin Bus and Railway station is walk able from this Hotel. They do have many twin and triple sharing rooms. Rooms were clean with basic facilities. Must say the owner of this place was too good... More

The hotel overlooks the sea and is a short walk from the sea-front. Just outside the hotel you can step on the coastal path that winds around the entire Isle of Wight and is a must-do here. It is also a convenient walk from the city centre where finding meals (as would be required with a stay at this hotel)... More

The Mayfair hotel advertises itself as a budget hotel and for a group of 30 runners, requiring twin rooms was ideal. The rooms were basic but fine, cleaner than many I've stayed at in much more expensive and luxurious places. The owner is charming and did everything she could to oblige, including providing a large water container in the bar... More

Got a cheap rate but even so the standard of the rooms was very poor. TV didn't work properly in one room, heating was off most of the day and only seemed to come on for an hour. The other room wasn't cleaned properly as had wine and chocolates left in it from previous occupants and then wasn't cleaned as... More

On arrival we were advised that due to a heating problem in one of the two single rooms we had booked we were being upgraded to family rooms at no extra cost. I normall find hotel rooms too hot but this one was like a fridge throughout the duration of the visit. At one point I had to sit next... More

The hotel is at excellent location in shanklin Esplanade. Have stayed here for 3 nights. Rooms were ok. The breakfast is not very good. It seems there is shortage of staff due to which it was not very well maintained. The staff was friendly and co-operative. Have to search for the hotel staff for getting water etc. The room service... More
